“My experiences led me to practice therapy with a person-centered model and an understanding that there is no one-size-fits-all approach.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
In addition to working in private practice, I have worked in acute inpatient psychiatry in hospital settings as well as in the nonprofit sector, overseeing street outreach teams in order to provide services to some of the most vulnerable New Yorkers. In all of my previous experiences, I have worked to navigate systems that exist outside of the individual and thus create barriers that need to be overcome. My experiences led me to practice therapy with a person-centered model and an understanding that there is no one-size-fits-all approach.
What should someone know about working with you?
My intake process is simple: We will speak via phone to ensure that I am a good fit for you and your therapy goals. Our first few sessions allow me to better understand you as a whole, including your history, what is presently bringing you to therapy, and what your goals are for our work together. I specialize in working with adolescents and adults who struggle with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and life transitions. I utilize a variety of psychotherapy modalities to best suit your particular experience.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
As an LCSW, I am required to receive continuing education credits in order to maintain my licensure and remain up-to-date on evidence-based theories and therapeutic approaches that I then utilize in our work together. I will continue to study, train, and build on my skillset as a licensed clinician.
